Alas, it is difficult to stay away from those groups, no matter how intelligent and well-meaning you are.

I want to express caution by the word 'alas'. Does it serve the purpose?

    I agree with both Nun Translator and Arturo - "alas" is an extremely old-fashioned word and it means "sadly" or "unfortunately" - it doesn't mean caution.
